[Official] ASUS M2N-SLI and M2N32-SLI Club! - Page 826

post #8251 of 12343
Hi there, I have a M2N SLI and I want to add a hardware raid controller but I'm not sure of the PCIe speeds that this motherboard will support.

I've been looking at the Adaptec 1430SA http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/support...ii/aar-1430sa/ and the HighPoint RocketRAID 2310, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16816115027.

Both are PCIe x4 cards, will I be able to run either of these in the x16 slot and have it work at x4 speed or do I need to look for a x1 card?

Thanks in advance.

Got my gtx 460 back from Asus RMA yesterday.
They could not fix it and sent a new card.
17 day process(12 business days+5 days transit).
Pretty painless overall and I'm pleased with my first RMA experience.

Hey, new member here.
Need some help with getting my Phenom 2 X4 955(not black edition) to run at full speed on M2N32 SLi_deluxe. I have got an ATi 6850 graphics card so the nvidia tools won't work. Been running at 800 mghz since before xmas. I did search the forum but couldnt find what I needed, any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Welcome.

I haven't seen non-BE question come up before. However if the situation for you is that you cannot modify the CPU multiplier separately from the HTref speed, then you will not be able to achieve the rated speed of that CPU on the M2N32 board. I say this based on my understanding that you need BE to get the unlocked multiplier.

The procedure in general goes something like this:
  1. Flash BIOS to 5002 version
  2. Set Vcore to around 3.6V
  3. disable all power management features in BIOS. C1E and CnQ.
  4. Ensure windows power management is set to high performance.
  5. Run Nvidia System Tools to gain access to the CPU multiplier settings. Ability to run this software is not tied to your graphics card.

Has anyone tried running their RAM at 1066? My RAM is DDR2-1066 but I run it at 800 since that's what the board is rated for, but in the BIOS it will let me set it to 1066.
Would that cause damage to the mobo/RAM or cause stability issues?

I don't think Asus would publish a BIOS update enabling this support unless it was safe to do so. It is not unusual to enable enhanced functionality after the initial release of the product. The enhancements we see are typically to allow for newer processors to function, but new graphics cards and faster RAM have also gone down this path.

Even the my T61 laptop had a BIOS update recently to allow SSDs to function!

Thanks alot for the quick reply.

I have tried all the steps you listed but Nvidia system tools doesnt allow me to change the multiplier, are there any other tools I can use for this?
